I am seriously interested in reading this thread if anyone knows where I can find it.

Swing with me a while, we can listen to the birds call, we can keep each other warm.
Swing with me forever, we can count up every flower, we can weather every storm.

RE: White Privlige and Ignoring the Problem
Somebody spoke of the sin of peanut butter and pickles (looking at you L&I!!!).

As a side note I'm >50% white. I needs me my privileges please Big Grin.

I prefer fantasy, but I have to live in reality.

I don't feel guilty for being white either, nor do I think any whites should, but some definitely do.

Trashing hypocritical white privilege crusaders helps in a political sense, IMO. Although it doesn't help everybody, it's good for people like myself.

Here's an example of a popular white privilege crusader -

I'm beginning to doubt your ability to talk without generalizing.

Whites think this.
Blacks think that.
Deaf people are x.
Blind people are y.
Conservatives are a.
Liberals are b.

There is a fuck ton of grey area in between black and white.

Exscuse me for trying to put thing in a way an outsider can understand. As I already said they're not my own personal views on the deaf, I'm just putting into context how communication issues have made problems interacting between communities. Not to mention blind culture and deaf culture have different agendas.

Let me say this slowly this time. Many deaf people communicate in a visual manner. Blind people lack the ability to see those communications. Many blind people communicate verbally. Deaf people lack the ability to hear those communications. Yes, there is a huge barrier to communication between those two segments of the population. Your stereotyping doesn't do a thing to change that. Get over yourself for god's sake.

Oh, and 'outsider' doesn't mean ignorant.

I'm not anti-social. I'm pro-solitude. Sleepy

RE: White Privlige and Ignoring the Problem
I just want to add that as a white semi-racist male, my levels of giving a shit about subtle racism towards black Americans is at an all time high of zero.
